• TLS over FTP not working.

    From Electrosys@1:103/705 to All on Tuesday, May 12, 2020 13:34:49
    I'm having some trouble with TLS over FTP not working properly and I'm wondering if anyone has any insights?

    The last error message indicates that the address was unroutable. Is this due to a router setting? As far as I understand this is a common problem.

    This reference talks a bit about the routing: https://support.tigertech.net/filezilla-disable-tls

    Has anyone worked through this problem before?

    Does it work when you use other Synchronet FTP servers (e.g. vert.synchro.net)?

    I get a similar TLS error when trying to upload a file to vert.synchro.net but I dont see the error about the routing when using vert ftp.

    Command:STOR eightchars_1.txt
    Response:150 Opening BINARY mode data connection for file transfer. Error:GnuTLS error -15 in gnutls_record_recv: An unexpected TLS packet was received.
    Error:Could not read from socket: ECONNABORTED - Connection aborted Error:Disconnected from server
    Error:File transfer failed


    Also, do we need to generate our own certificate file? Or does the SBBS system do this for us?

    Thanks,

    I'm seeing errors too in FileZilla with FTPS. Dunno what the issue is off-hand.

    Also, do we need to generate our own certificate file? Or does the SBBS system do this for us?

    Synchronet generates a self-signed certificate automatically. If you want a LetsEncrypt signed certificate, see http://wiki.synchro.net/module:letsyncrypt
